"Everybody Go Away" (sometimes rendered as "Ev'rybody Go Away") is a song by Weezer.

Appearances

Overview

"Everybody Go Away" was recorded at Rivers Cuomo's home studio at 6145 Rodgerton Dr. in Los Angeles in October of 2000, in preparation for the recording sessions for The Green Album. The song is not known to have been attempted in the studio. In 2009, the demo was released on the compilation CD Fresh Cuts Vol. 4, given out for free at Guitar Center locations. A truncated version of this demo appeared on the demo compilation Alone VII: The Green Years, released in 2020.

It is not definitively known whether "Everybody Go Away" is a solo Rivers Cuomo demo or a full-band demo with Cuomo performing all of the vocals. The song's presence on Alone VII suggests the former, though Karl Koch has suggested that it's the latter.[1][2]

Neil Young, Weezer's tour manager from 2000 (not to be confused with the musician of the same name), is credited as a producer on the song.

Lyrics

Everybody go away
There's just one thing I can say
I wanna be alone
And turn off all the phones
and sit around and space out all the day

Everybody shut your mouth
I'm vacationing down south
Where nobody talks, moves around or walks
Heavier than feathers on the sea

If you left it up to me
I'd turn on everyone
If you left it wild and free
I'd break that chain and burn this off

Everybody shut your mouth
I'm vacationing down south
Where nobody talks, moves around or walks
Heavier than feathers on the sea
